Elkins – The Davis & Elkins College online RN-to-BSN program has been ranked No. 1 in West Virginia by the nursing advocacy organization RegisteredNursing.org. The organization is made up of nurses with the mission of promoting excellence in nursing by enabling future and current nurses with the education and employment resources they need to succeed.
To assess the rankings, RegisteredNursing.org uses institutional data including accreditation, tuition and fees, acceptance rate and graduation rate, as well as how a program supports students during school, toward licensure and beyond.
“I’m thrilled about this top ranking,” said Dr. Huixin Wu, chair of the D&E Division of Nursing. “All of our experienced and dedicated nursing faculty and staff made this happen. We understand the challenges for RNs to go back to school and get their BSN degrees. Our 100% online RN-to-BSN program is specially designed for them to experience this meaningful journey smoothly. We are proud to provide quality nursing education to our nursing students in the Mountain State and around the country.”
RegisteredNursing.org emphasizes that ADN and diploma-holding RNs can increase their earning potential and open themselves up to more employment opportunities by returning to school to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing.
